  2. Season chicken with thyme, oregano, salt and pepper and set aside.

  4. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside.
  5. Add garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Stir in Florida orange juice, chicken stock, maple syrup, honey and rosemary and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes.

  8. Return chicken to skillet.
